Required Courses - Major Program

Commencing in Fall 2014, Mathematics 265, 267, 367, Mathematics 275, 277, 375 and 377 will replace respectively Mathematics 251, 253, 353, Applied Mathematics 217, 219, 307 and 309 and will serve as prerequisites for appropriate courses. In some special cases, Mathematics 267 will replace Mathematics 349 or 353. For these and other deviations from the general rule, see individual course entries for details. Mathematics 267 supplemented by Mathematics 177 will be accepted as equivalent to Mathematics 277.

See also Section 3 (Faculty Regulations), Subsections 3.4B (Program Requirements - Major Programs) and 3.5B (Course Selection - Introductory Courses).

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 211 or 213

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 249 or 265 or 275

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 267 or 277

1.5 FCE - Mathematics 311 or 313, Mathematics 321 or Statistics 321, Statistics 323

4.0 FCE - Breadth requirement: Options from Faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 4.0 FCE, at least 1.0 FCE must be from the Faculty of Arts. Science 311 may be counted among the 4.0 FCE from other Faculties.

7.0 FCE - Options

Required Courses - Honours Program

Commencing in Fall 2014, Mathematics 265, 267, 367, Mathematics 275, 277, 375 and 377 will replace respectively Mathematics 251, 253, 353, Applied Mathematics 217, 219, 307 and 309 and will serve as prerequisites for appropriate courses. In some special cases, Mathematics 267 will replace Mathematics 349 or 353. For these and other deviations from the general rule, see individual course entries for details. Mathematics 267 supplemented by Mathematics 177 will be accepted as equivalent to Mathematics 277.

Students are expected to enrol in honours courses upon their decision to become honours majors. In addition to the requirements specified by the Faculty of Science (see Section 3), students are required to complete the following program of study:

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 273

1.5 FCE - Mathematics 249 or 265, 267, 367

2.0 FCE - Mathematics 211 or 213, Mathematics 311 or 313, Mathematics 321 or Statistics 321, Statistics 323

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 335 or 355 or Pure Mathematics 435 or 455

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 445 or 447 or 545 or 421 or 423 or Pure Mathematics 445 or 545 or 421 or 521

4.0 FCE - Breadth requirement: Options from Faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 4.0 FCE, at least 1.0 FCE must be from the Faculty of Arts. Science 311 may be counted among the 4.0 FCE from other Faculties.

5.0 FCE - Options

Note: The following substitutions allow students to enter the honours program later in their studies:

(a) The calculus sequence Mathematics 265, 267, 367 may be replaced by Mathematics 281, 283, 381 or an equivalent sequence with permission from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

(b) Mathematics 273 may be replaced by a grade of "B+" or better in Mathematics 271 with permission.

(c) Mathematics 213 may be replaced by a grade of "B+" or better in Mathematics 211 or 221 with permission.
